Audi to launch Q3 in 2012

Audi is planning to launch the new Q3 SUV in India by 2012. The new Q3 which will go head on to the X1 will be slotted in a similar price segment. We expect the Q5 to be showcased or even launched at the 2012 auto expo.

Audi Q3 a five-door coupe crossover will be aimed as more of a lifestyle/sports car, rather than for the family/off-road market like the Q5 & Q7.

The Q3 will be assembled in India to keep costs low and will a volumes driver for Audi India. The Q3 could sport a 1.8 litre petrol engine with 170-hp and a new 2.0-litre common-rail TDI that will come in 136-hp.
